A Strong Defense Is Crucial When Your Freedom Is On The Line
In Pennsylvania, DUI vehicular manslaughter is also referred to as homicide by vehicle while driving under the influence. Because it is a second-degree felony, the penalties if convicted are severe, including a mandatory minimum of three years in jail. A judge has discretion when sentencing. If you have had repeated DUI charges or you are on probation or parole, you could be sentenced to as much as 10 years.
Preserving your freedom and protecting your future requires an aggressive DUI defense strategy. We will analyze the evidence against you and the circumstances surrounding your arrest to identify any inconsistencies or mistakes, including:
- Improper stop, search or arrest
- Improper administration of field sobriety tests
- Unreliable test results
- Failure to administer Miranda warnings or respect right to have a lawyer present
Our strength is our understanding of the intricacies of these cases. We will advise you of the best course of action for an effective defense that will provide you with the most favorable outcome.
